Searched, by Rodney Fenner

Hello world. I’m sure most have heard about this by now, however, I was compelled to write about it anyway because I just saw it on the news yesterday. Last month, an 8 year old girl was strip searched at Buckingham Correctional. Needless to say, I was appalled […]

Other Senses? by Rodney Fenner

Hello world. Before I begin, I’d just like to say that if you don’t have an open mind about life and the things we don’t definitively know, you shouldn’t even read this. I know enough to understand that some people’s perspectives are nonnegotiable and that’s okay. However, for […]

Daddy Issues, by Rodney Fenner

Hello world. I’ve mentioned before that I was raised completely by women; my mother, my great aunt, my cousin, a short stint in a foster home. My father wasn’t around for whatever reason(s). Throughout my childhood, I can remember maybe two instances where I saw him and spent […]

Hello world. I was looking through my archive and came across these two poems. One was written by a friend of mine’s girlfriend (so I was told), and the response was written by me because he asked me to. I just thought they would be nice to share, […]

Alone, by Rodney Fenner

I am alone and maybe I should accept that position. Because those who claim to be with me are only apparitions. Wraiths, spectres, flickering shadows in my vision. Whispering of love and friendship, but they’re the hollowest of provisions. Their very speaking of fealty is a feckless act […]

Purpose, by Rodney Fenner

Hello world. Every day I take time to survey my surroundings in here. There are people of various ages, sizes, hues, cultures, upbringings, beliefs and a myriad of other things that make everyone uniquely individual. Our obvious commonality is our incarceration. For whatever the reason, we’ve all ended […]

Untitled By: Rodney Fenner

How many ways can I say the things I’ve said? Explain how to articulate these feelings you’ve bred Is it real or am I being fictitiously fed By a desire that only exists in my head? You’ve bought the one thing money can’t purchase What I promised not […]

Worth It? By: Rodney Fenner

Every time the hardships surface and for every single moment I’ve hurted I put the pain of my life in these verses and sit back to wonder if anything’s worth it Years of my life eaten by this prison A gigantic gap where my freedom is missing Surrounded […]

Anger By: Rodney Fenner

Hello world. People say things of this nature all the time, “I got so angry because I love you so much”. I’m not sure at all where this came from, but bravo to the first person who ever said it. It’s ingratiated itself with society somehow and become […]

Free Me By: Rodney Fenner

It’s like my suffering is perpetuating itself Like something is slowly masticating my health Pieces of my soul are being amputated in stealth And the rest will likely be extravasated and kept My eyes are heavy with the gaze of fatigue From living every day in this maze […]

Emotion By Rodney Fenner

I wonder what life would be like without the swell of emotion Without its power to sway proclivity like a potent potion Without it inundating us as forceful as the biggest ocean Its waves crashing against the containers of our hearts, causing erosion Why is it that for […]

Hello world. This excerpt is from the second book I wrote. This book was the second in and urban trilogy. Maybe the story is a little rudimentary and the language is crass. I wrote this in 2013 and I wanted to change it in places a year or […]

Hello world. This is an excerpt from my third book. I was one hundred sixty one pages into it before I shelved it in favor of the two books I’m writing now. I’m sort of a capricious writer. All feedback is welcome. For me, all criticism is good […]
